A BIT ABOUT COGNITIVE BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY (CBT)
What is it?
CBT is an evidenced based, short, problem focused style of therapy. In a nutshell, CBT helps us to explore the meaning we have taken from situations and how this affects us in terms of our thoughts, how we act, our emotions and physical sensations. In CBT, we work with tackling negative thoughts and acting in a more helpful way to manage how we feel in terms of our emotions and physical sensations. As shown in the picture above, these are all interrelated.
Is there evidence to support this therapy?
CBT is without a doubt the most researched psychotherapy for depression, anxiety and trauma. It has been found to be effective for all of these conditions and is recommended by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence among many other organisations.
